For most people backing something up is a tedious job, no matter how hard or easy it is or how long it takes.

You have to remember to log into your site, backup the entire site, and then download the file. 

How often do you need to be backing up your site?

The easy answer to that is that you should be backing up your site as often as you update it.

How often do you update it? That is how often you should backup.

If you update daily, backup daily. If you update monthly, backup monthly.

There is a concept or more accurately a method or technique of backing up your files, your website, or even your WordPress blog.

It’s something that everyone needs to do but so few people do it.

You need to backup your WordPress site because it’s better to be safe than sorry.

You might get hacked or because you might need some kind of an old file or even to see how your WordPress site used to look.

You might have heard that saying, you’re better safe than sorry.

After hearing all of the reasons why it is important to back up your blog, you have finally decided that it’s a good idea, in fact, a great idea, to back up your WordPress blog.

Now, in the event anything goes wrong you have a copy somewhere you can use to recover your blog.

What features should you look for in a WordPress backup plugin?

I’ve seen many plugins that overload you with features. At the end of the day do you need all that fanciness or do you just need a backup plugin that simply works?

It’s never fun for someone to get access to your WordPress blog, but unfortunately, it happens every day.

Every day websites are deleted, defaced, or simply taken over and you can avoid that by installing the login lockdown plugin, the HTTPS for WordPress plugin, and the WP-Security plugin.

A very simple plugin called login lockdown simply blocks access to your blog if someone enters the wrong password too many times.

A very common technique for hackers to get entry to a WordPress blog is simply trying many passwords over and over and over and over until something works.

Believe it or not, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to keep your blog safe from most hackers.

It just involves you taking a few simple steps and a few safeguards to make sure that you don’t have problems in the future.

Here are a few things you can do right now.

Make sure all your WordPress usernames and passwords are strong passwords, keep your email secure, lock anyone else’s IP address in your backend C-Panel and install the Akismet anti-spam plugin.
